Dell Drops Prices on CableCARD Tuners
A few weeks ago Dell
ended their special pricing on Digital Cable Tuners, taking them from $180
for a single tuner to $255 for a single tuner.
That didn’t last for too long though. Now Dell has lowered the price to $199 for a
single tuner and $379 for dual tuners. This
move puts an entry level XPS
420 with a single CableCARD at $1,248 and dual CableCARD at $1,428.
There is still a bit of a
price war going on between Dell and HP, but this move puts Dell back into
the mix. Dell is still the only top tier
OEM offering PCs with dual CableCARD, an option that puts them on top of HP who only offers single tuner configurations.
